Art work Description:
Clive Jackson's paintings are like beautiful self-contained homages to the artifacts of mid twentieth century 'popular' culture. Meticulous and sensitive attention to rendering, brushstroke and modeling combine to draw the viewer towards the canvas. Technique and craft serve to imbue each selected artifact with a sensitivity and tenderness inherent in the time and care it takes to paint them. The choice and juxtaposition of items that compose the imagery reflect Clive's life as a working musician and his fascination with classic 1950's commercial illustration.
